Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Loudest Show You've Been To? Dead-related

Face it, the one commodity the Grateful Dead were experts at was consistently high quality concert sound. The sound crew learned monumental lessons during 1974 about what not to do with professional audio gear and how to protect a systems limitations. Sometimes in life it isn't always what you know as much as "what not to do!".

Loudest show ever?


Hot Tuna Live - Aragon Ballroom Chicago 11/24/72.

Jorma, Jack and Co. had stacks of Marshall Amplifiers, Custom JBL Enclosures, PA speakers etc. a monumental pile of gear for such a small room to say the least. Our ears rang for two days after.

Jefferson Airplane - Auditorium Theater August 24th, 1972

This was simply the better show, both performance and sound quality. There were tape recorders at the soundboard this fine evening, my guess is that this was the tour recording tracks for "30 Seconds Over Winterland".

You'd think that there was some sort of monumental gear competition with their peers.
